I am not playing Lord Shiva for The Immortals of Meluha: Ranbir
Actor Ranbir Kapoor has clarified that he is not playing Lord Shiva in the movie adaptation of the best selling novel The Immortals of Meluha. There are rumours that filmmakers Karan Johar and Ayan Mukerji have chosen Ranbir to play Lord Shiva in the film. But the versatile actor said that it is not true.
‘Yes, I read it in the newspapers that it is The Immortals of Meluha, but that is not true. It is completely untrue,’ Ranbir said here in an interview. ‘I also read in the newspapers that we are doing that (film on The Immortals of Meluha) but we are not doing that,’ he added.
Karan has apparently bought the rights from its author Amish Tripathi. The movie will be directed by Ayan and will go on the
floors next year.
